    Stupid Do you ever forget how old you are?

    Yesterday I popped over to my parents' house to return my dad's snowblower since it's now about 75 degrees outside and I doubt I'll be needing it any more this season (GLOBAL WARMING). Now, my dad has a very large family (he was one of 13 kids), and my parents were having a bunch of them over for St. Patrick's Day dinner of corned beef & cabbage.


    When asked by one of my aunts how old I was I paused for a second and said "33". We went on with the conversation and eventually I ducked out so they could all eat dinner.

    A short time ago I noticed on my facebook that it was one of my cousins' birthdays today. She's the same age as me, and she just turned 34. "Huh, I thought I was the same age as she was!" I said to myself, and then I realized that I turned 34 last month, not 33.

    This isn't the first time it's happened, and I will freely admit I've been forgetting how old I am since about the age of 27 or so.


    The vast majority of you are younger than I am, some by quite a bit. Do you ever forget how old you are?

    Is it because as you get older, age just isn't important anymore?

    I think seeking differences in people by their age loses a lot of meaning after teenage years or your early twenties. Because of that, and because most people probably want to forget anyways, it's easy to leave age, including your own, as an after thought. Less celebration; less glimpses of new beginnings; just motion, motion, motion.

    I'm 24. I sometimes have to pause to remember how old I am. I'm kinda in a weird place right now at my school. Except for the non-trads (who are mostly in their 40s), I'm usually one of the oldest in the class. Most of the people my age have graduated by now and moved away from here. My city is really shitty so there aren't that many people here my age that I want to be friends with, therefore I'm 3-5 years older than most of the people I hang out with now. I usually forget how old I am until we go out for dinner and they remind me they can't drink at Chili's yet.

    I've been 23 for a couple years. It's pretty easy for me.

    I've never seen my birth certificate so I'm not 100% sure how old I am.

    Also, I guess I might be a muslim who was born in Kenya.

    You could still fake a birth certificate to say you were of Kenyan decent but born in Hahahawaii.

    I don't normally forget my age.. I used to when I was a little younger though.

    I'm 22 but I have two birth certificates. One says I'm three years older than I am (they fucked up and thought it was plausible that I was born 19 days after my sister).

    I don't believe I've ever forgotten how old I am.

    I'll be 26 in a month. I'd rather be 26 than 25 because I'd rather be an even number.

    But holy shit that's just another year closer to 30.

    I can't wait to be 23.. for some reason the number 22 is just so boring to me (not the age.. this year has been great)

    I used to be unsure with 100% of certainty of my age between like 23-28 but now that I'm 30 its just a nice round number so I know now at least for the next year or two.

    If I ever forget how much of an old man I am, my wife is always happy to remind me.

    I'm kind of seeing someone a significant amount older than I am and I like to remind him every chance I get that he is an old man (only 30, but still.. it's fun)

    I bet it's not as fun as smacking a 22 year old girls ass when you're 30.

    I have to think about my age for a few seconds on occasion. I just add ten to the last two digits of the year and I'm good.

    I suppose there's just been a lack of age-related milestones over the past few years, causing age to become a much less significant factor in life.

    I'm 23, got a birthday next week.

    Most of the time I don't think about it, at all. I'm of age to drink, and have been for ~3 years now, so it isn't awesome I can go out drinking anymore, nor do I really give two shits how old I am.

    I just wanna know how old you are. 16.18? Alright

    Sometimes, I thought I was 21 a few days ago. I'll be 24 in June.

    Yeah for me right now there are basically two age groups. Under 21 and at least 21. I can see how you'd default to 21.

    Im 25 but a while back me and my girlfriend were talking to some people, and they asked how old I was. I said 24 for some reason and didnt really notice till my gf said something.

    Ive also had one of my friends turn to me randomly and say "Man, am I 24 or 25?"

    You have very specific taste. Not many people even know their age to two decimal places.

    I've done that with one of my friends. Our birthdays are only a week apart, so I knew she'd know.

    i always know, if i take a second to think about it, but my instinct is still that i'm 22.

    i think i don't feel grown up enough to be 23. one added year has never made a difference to my feelings about myself until 23. why, i have no idea.

    I always say 'around (age)' because it doesnt often spring to mind my actual age unless I think about it. Easier this way.
